That wouldn't be surprising if it's true. Whoever gets it only has the spot until April. Then the voters can keep them or clean house. With 5 of the seats up next April seems like a perfect opportunity for the voters to do major house cleaning.

I hope that the board chooses another male like Nick and Patrick. They bring good balance to the board. However, I was a Gillooley fan because she wasn't a trouble maker and was well respected by the community and her other board members. She never seemed to make any waves. It is ashame she resigned. Another male would be nice to see for a change.

As long as it's no one's relative, cousin, etc. Too much in-bred NL politics when things like this come up.

We do not want another Yes-Man like Kathy Markus. She seemed to do whatever the Mayor and Sass asked her to do. Gee I wonder WHY??

Have you been living under a rock?She wasn't respected by anyone including other board members for a very long time! She resigned because she was a stalker! It was loooooong overdue! She was a yes man just like Markus was as well. We do need another male or perhaps a senior citizen who has a new perspective. Someone with some business background would be great.

It's a shame Denise Swider didn't apply. She know what she's talking about and she's all about the kids.

The voters get to make their choice next April. Whichever one they choose will have to run in the April election to keep that spot on the board. 5 board members are up for re-election next April. That is a wonderful opportunity for the voters to clean house and vote them all off the board. The voters need to take that board back and put decent people who want to represent the taxpayers and not Sass and company. The last voter turnout was pathetic.
